Cuban lawmakers have passed a resolution denouncing Arizona’s new immigration law as “racist and xenophobic,” recalling an old dispute in the process: the argument that the United States’ purchase of Arizona from Mexico in the 19th century was tantamount to theft.
Yes, that great bastion of freedom in the Caribbean feels compelled to attack Arizona’s immigration law, probably because the State Department sent a huge signal that it would be okay. In the meantime, remember what it’s like to live in Cuba:
Cuban citizens are required to carry identification with them wherever they go, and can be stopped by police and sent home if they are found in a part of the island where they don’t belong.
And that’s how they treat their citizens.
